Operation Jiggly-Bits

Carla over at My 1/2 Dozen Daily is running an ambitious (and scary) challenge: Operation Jiggly Bits.

I have all sorts of jiggly bits and will give this a go. I’m fiddling with the rules (forgive me, Carla!) as I am six weeks postpartum and breastfeeding. And I’ve never been in awesome shape. I’ll make it challenging for me because I am no hero.

Carla’s rules (modified for the more pitiful):

1. This will be a 6 week challenge.

2. Check in every Monday with measurements, weight and updates on your week. The good, the bad and the ugly.

3. 8 glasses of water a day!

4. 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day. Minimum.

5. Intense calorie burning high intensity exercise 3-4x week to get those results you want to see. Starting off slowly, I’ll commit to a decent walk 3 or 4 times a week.

6. Ab/toning exercises Yoga 3-4x week.

7. Avoid processed, fried, sugar laden, junk, refined foods as much as possible.

With my rules I don’t expect big weight loss. I’m hoping to start some healthier habits. Good luck to everyone!

  4. Hi I’m Toni, I’ve just signed up for OJB too!

    I lost my baby weight after my daughter was born, the combination of nursing and exercise was amazing! Hopefully it will have the same effect for you 🙂 The greatest thing I did was find a gym where they had daycare. Then I could exercise and shower! And you know how hard it can be just to fit a shower in when you have a baby!

    Here is where you’ll find me:
